Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)

2 And again she brought forth his brother Abel. And Abel was a shepherd, and Cain a husbandman. 2 Later she gave birth to his brother Abel. Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil.
3 And it came to pass after many days, that Cain offered, of the fruits of the earth, gifts to the Lord. 3 In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the LORD.
4 Abel also offered of the firstlings of his flock, and of their fat: and the Lord had respect to Abel, and to his offerings. 4 But Abel brought fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The LORD looked with favor on Abel and his offering,
5 But to Cain and his offerings he had no respect: and Cain was exceeding angry, and his countenance fell. 5 but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.
6 And the Lord said to him: Why art thou angry? and why is thy countenance fallen? 6 Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast?
